Still no Copa del Rey final date

The 2018-19 Copa del Rey final still does not have a date, despite a two-hour meeting between the Spanish FA, La Liga and the Sports Council.

FA President Luis Rubiales wants the final to be on May 25, 2019, as the finale to the season, but La Liga President Javier Tebas would like it to take place on May 20 or May 27 in a midweek slot, as he hopes to play the last round of league fixtures that weekend.

A deadline has now been set for July 31 to try and find an agreement. If not, the Spanish Sports Council will rule on the matter.
